Be aware that there is a difference between the 68-74 X-body cars and the 75-79 cars. The early cars used a rear steer subframe based on the first gen Camaros. The later cars used a front steer subframe based on the second gen Camaros. The motor mounts and frame mounts are completely different. I don't know the details of the Buick cars, but the Olds Omega used the Olds 350 for 73-74 but not in the later cars. Motor mount availability might be an issue.
